mods are for losers


Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.


Goodbye HIH. I will always love you. I hope the day comes when I can delete this from my signature. That'll mean we're back in business.

You'll always have a special place in my childhood and in my heart.

Map is kinda foggy, eh?

Mongoose seemed to have way better traction with the front tires than the back, but maybe it's just me. Whatever happened to 4 wheel drive, do the Spartan III mongooses not get that?

Would have loved to hear what the damn thing sounds like, but they had to put some stupid-ass song over it. Sure looks cool, though.

The sound is pretty much the same.

What's with the fog of war? Was that intentionally put in or was it the result of...something?

Pretty cool though, I hope with the research that's been done with Halo 3 that it won't take as long to get stuff mapped out for Reach, but I also hope the mods aren't game-ruining ones like in Halo 2.

Since when did mod talk become okay at HIH? I figured this would have been locked by now.

Not that I'm against modding maps for the sake of fun and enjoyment, I do enjoy it, and I've done it a few times in the past. I just thought this wasn't the place for it.

On the topic though, I'm not a fan of the way this mongoose looks. It's huge. But that's my opinion. :)

So are the grenades, I had a screenshot lying around somewhere of a grenade next to a spartan's boot...the grenade was bigger.

Edit: Found it:



Click it for the full-size version.

And yes, both the 'nade and the boot are on the ground, same level.

True. Compare that mongoose to the one in Halo 3. That one (your modded goose) seems a bit huge. Cool video.

I'm pretty sure the mongoose is still the same size, it is just that Spartan IIIs are smaller than Spartan IIs.

The Ghost got the same treatment in terms of scale. The IIIs are definitely just smaller; compare Jorge to the rest of the gang.

Jorge is definately bigger. He is probably a foot taller than the Spartan in the center, maybe more. And he is also way more bulky.

Also remember that the perspective in this game is quite a bit wider than in previous Halo games. Everything seems more distant, larger, and aside from the fact that movement speed has been altered, it even feels like you're a little slower because of it. This makes objects appear closer to their actual size than they did before. Vehicles in Halo 3 were huge, but they didn't look it due to the camera focus/perspective.
It's all about scale.

And I wouldn't say the Mongoose is "bigger". Maybe "beefier".

I prefer the new mongoose, at least based on what we were shown. It does look beefier and just...more defined. It's Hawt!

Inb4lock? This thread seems fine. I mean, it is mods, but it is a look into the Mongoose on Halo: Reach.

Looks awesome. :) I still prefer Warthogs over Mongeese, though.

If the mongoose had hydraulics so it could fling itself high into the air, I'd love it. tis not very useful the way it is right now =/ I like the look better than H3's though

hhhmmm… sounds a little like Mario Kart, but I see what you're sayin'. It's still not very useful as it has no offensive capability.
Seems to me that if they want to make it useful they should make you able to fire your weapon when you stop. Touch-and-go sniping and hit-and-run rockets would make the Mongoose one hell of a threat.

It reminds me a lot more like just a regular 4-Wheeler now, I think because of the handlebars. It didn't show it in the vid, but can we still have a passenger on the back?

You can see untextured marines riding mongooses in one of the vidoc. Both driving and riding on back.
